Prop Bet Madness!

Hey everyone, I hope you have all had a great week and weekend.

So this week has been the best 5 days poker I’ve had ever I think. I setup a prop bet with a few friends of mine, the bet being that I could play 1,300 SnGs in 5 day from Monday-Friday. This works out as an average of 260 games/day. Prior to this week my personal best for 1 day was 257 games and that was a one off day, not doing it for 5 continuous days. This was going to be a lot tougher than my previous bet as well where the average was 207 games/day over 8 days.

Monday, here we go!

Well it seems the run good from last week was still present! God mode was fully engaged, I haven’t had a session like this in as long as I can remember! As everyone knows I don’t check my results until the end of the week, so I had no idea how well the session had actually gone, but there seemed to be an insane amount of bubbles and HU running for the entire session. I played about 215 games 15 tabling pretty much the entire time, then went to Krav and played again for a little bit when I got home. I then stopped, had a beer and watched Game of Thrones, life is fantastic sometimes! I am also quite glad I haven’t read the books because OMG what an episode, bat shit crazy y0!

The rest of the week was ouch of the same, I put in long days and managed to play 15-18 tables the entire time! This is a personal best for me, as before I have only been playing 12 and it’s great to feel relatively comfortable with increasing the games to 15. On Wednesday I think it was (the days blurred together after the long sessions!) I made a side bet with a friend of mine that I could play 300 games in 1 day! The deal was I had to stop regging by midnight, I got incredibly close according to sharkscope I played 295!! Painfully close! Oh well it was a tiny bet for $10 so no harm done, but it was the most intense day I’ve had in my life and I can’t quite believe I played that many games. bens prop bet meme

The week was going incredibly well until Friday! I somehow made a huge error in tracking the amount of games I had played, and when I thought I had a 180 games left which wasn’t looking too bad. Upon closer inspection it became clear that I actually had 275 left at about 5pm Friday……

By this point I was incredibly tired and getting quite irritable and was also finding it hard to keep 10 or more games running. I could feel myself drifting off and losing concentration and I was also beginning to make misclicks and mistakes more frequently.

I decided to abandon the bet, this was because I really felt that I was playing awful poker and really struggling to keep going. I also wanted to get out of the house and socialise in the evening and not grind until midnight again. I had an incredible week already and really didn’t feel I needed to put myself through the extra pain on Friday night. I did feel like a quitter, I might have been able todo it if I had a rest for an hour then played late into the night, but this really wasn’t appealing at the time!

So overall I’m incredibly happy with this week, other than losing the bets! 18 tabling was immense and playing 295 games in one day was insane! I also got an awesome score on the Battle of Planets weekly leader board. I had 1st place for the entire week until Friday when someone else went a sick heater and put me into 2nd. This is still good for a $300 bonus though so I can’t complain too much.

Now the fun bit, the numbers and the money!

Games: 1,094 w00p w00p

Profit/Loss: $516.14

Coaching/Review: 0/2

So there we go, that’s 2 weeks running with decent profit which is a much needed boost, both financially and mentally as I was really struggling after the last few months of running bad and not being able to win a hand.

I don’t think there will be a blog next week as I’m really busy all week and won’t get to play much, if at all. Have a great week everyone, and I will see you all soon.
